HomeRunner
HomeRunner is a computer software program that turns any image file (photos, drawings, graphics, etc.) into an interactive on-screen display. Although designed for touch screen computers, it can be installed on any computer and easily controlled with a mouse.

HomeRunner lets you use image files (.jpeg, .gif, .bmp) for backgrounds and control buttons to create impressive custom user interfaces. You can even download your favorite skins from the internet and turn them into functional control surfaces in minutes!

For the ultimate in home control convenience, use a floor plan as the background for your main screen, and photos of each room and area of your home as backgrounds for your control screens. Place transparent "control spots" over each device in the photos you want to control. Add graphic control buttons to access frequently used functions such as lighting scenes, security, A/V, thermostat, etc. (Button images can be selected from the built-in library, downloaded from the internet or created from scratch.)
